About Me:
Atheist from the west coast (originally from Texas.)

I was raised in a deeply Pentecostal Christian home. We attended Church every Sunday, Sunday night, and Wednesday. Believing in God wasn't optional for the majority of my life, and it wasn't until I was in my twenties that I actually even entertained the idea that there was no God. It was a difficult deconversion, my parents were pretty upset. My girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time, was pretty unhappy as well. While we had both said we were Christians when we met, neither of us were practicing. I told her thinking it wouldn't matter, but shortly after it became something we fought about a lot, and she began insisting we attend Church.

The last year of my life has been one of growth. My girlfriend has accepted my non-belief, and even begun to make that transition herself as she began to really read the Bible closely. My father, while still at times struggling with my atheism, has also become much more accepting. My son, who turned three last September, is amazing, and fills up a huge amount of my time. Life is, for the first time in a long time, really good.
